Catch J.D. Tuccille Discussing the NYPD’s Pre-Crime Youth Tracking on RT at 5pm ET

The New York City Police Department has developed a novel
approach, identifying kids it sees as potential troublemakers and
then essentally stalking them, bunny boiler-style. The cops show up
at their doors, hail them when they’re with their friends in the
street, follow them on Facebook and Twitter through fake profiles,
create dossiers on them and stop just short of actually stealing an
undershirt to keep under the pillow. I hope.
As the New York Times
reports:

“We are coming to find you and monitor every step you take,”
said Joanne Jaffe, the department’s Housing Bureau chief. “And we
are going to learn about every bad friend you have. And you’re
going to get alienated from those friends because we are going to
be all over you.”

I’ll admit to finding this a less than convincing means of
deterring a teenager from a killing rage. And I’m willing
to bet they hired an old girlfriend of mine as a consultant.
Anyway, tune in to RT at 5pm ET to see what I have to say on the
matter.
